I vastly prefer the menu interface over the previous Nano, likely because I’ve become so used to the touchscreen interface already on my iPhone. It also feels like I can get to my music faster than the old Nano. I also love the customization options on the screen. I‘ve replaced a home screen icons with my favorite podcast. It’s nice to have something useful on the screen rather than something I rarely use, like the genius feature. Altering their position is identical to the other iOS devices, simply hold your finger down on the icon and it will start to wiggle. Once in “Wiggle mode”, you can slide the icons to different screens on the Nano.
The new iPod Nano is a solid choice for anyone that’s looking for a step up from the Shuffle, but not quite to the feature heavy, more expensive iPod Touch. The menu interface is more streamlined than the previous model and it’s definitely a better player for music on the go as well as during exercising. Some previous Nano lovers may bemoan the lack of video or gaming functionality, but will be delighted with the smaller size and quick touchscreen interface. I recommend pairing the new Nano with a much higher quality pair of earbuds to get the best quality of sound out of the player. The iPod Nano comes in 7 different colors (red, silver, blue, green, pink, gray and yellow) and is priced at $149.99 for the 8GB and $179.99 for the 16GB.
